." a short time later, the state department confirmed the u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi, libya, was under attack. searches for the british monitoring group called it a well-planned assault that occurred in two wavs. the sources said the attack involved a group of about 20 militants and included heavy artillery, machine guns, and rocket-propelled grenades. by morning, it was confirmed that four american diplomats, including the u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stevens, were killed in the attack. that makes stevens the first ambassador killed in the line of duty since 1988, when arnold raphael, the ambassador to pakistan, died alongside the president of pakistan in an unexplained plane crash. president obama addressed the nation from the white house rose garden this morning. about 50 u.s. marines were deployed to libya and two u.s. warships are headed towards the libyan coast. secretary of state hillary clinton addressed the sad irony of the attacks in the wake of the u.s. support of the libyan revolution. >> today many americans are asking, indeed, i asked myself, how could
believe to be a terrorist act, against our consulate in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the attacks of september 11. these attacks do many things, but they remind us i think first of the bravery and commitment of government officials who serve in countries around the world, supporting the struggles of people in those countries, to live free. and by doing so work to improve our own national security. the attack in libya also reminds us that even though the core of al qaeda has been seriously weakened, we still face threats from an evolving and fractious set of terrorist groups and individuals united by a common ideology which is that of haven't -- violent islamist extremism. i'll have some questions to ask the three of you about the nature of the terrorist threat today and specifically with regard to the reaction to this film whether you think it has raised the threat level against any places or institutions or individuals here in the united states. reporting to us on the terrorist threat to the homeland today, i also hope you'll address other concerns such as the effort to counter h

: this is the fox report. tonight more mixed messages on the deadly attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. and now the white house seems to be changing its tune. just hours after saying this. >> we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> shep: the white house now says its self-evident the murder of a u.s. ambassador and three other americans was a terrorist attack. plus a report reveals american incomes haven't been this low in more than a decade. some experts say that could mean we're finally really on the road to recovery. >> i'm just happy to be on the ground. >> shep: an amusement park ride leaves passengers dangling in midair for almost four hours. >> reason why we were on there is that he's trying to get me over my fear of heights. >> shep: did it work? but first from fox this thursday night, it was another terrorist attack on 9-11. that's what the white house is now saying about the assassination of the united states ambassador and three other americans. that seems to contradict what we've been hearing from u.s. officials, including the u.s. ambassador to the no
sources tell fox the former detainee with ties to al qaeda may have led the assault in benghazi. this is the only picture we have ever had of him. he reportedly went tree from guantanamo bay in 2007 when the agreement that muammar qaddafi would keep him locked up. clearly that didn't happen. >>reporter: beside the attacks on benghazi, we first reported on this a week ago, there were two assessments indicating that conditions on the ground in eastern libya were deteriorating. this report by the defense department and the library of congress, specifically mentioned that detainee, sufyan ben qumu, has the leading edge of al qaeda's footprint reading that the senior leadership is seeking a clandestine network in libya that could destabilize the government or offer logistical support to al qaeda's activists in north africa. >> how good of a spy do you have to be to realize that part of libya is unstable? how many attacks do you have to have on the consulate and ambassador before you realize it is dangerous? >>reporter: we reported on monday this was a separate assessment by the c.i.a
into the election. >> and yet his numbers have gone down since what happened in benghazi, we have seen that the presidented is not as strong on foreign affairs. and it was interesting joe emeka talked to the former president clinton and they asked him whether or not this was a mistake not to meet with other foreign leaders and he paused with what might be considered an uncomfortable pause and then he said this. >> looked to me like again from observing it that the president was reluctant to have one meeting and in the u.n. schedule where normally he'll have 15 because of the nearness of the campaign. >> and as we watch the presidentpresident presidented arriving at the united nations, what about the optics of this? >> i think he couldn't have had one meeting with bibi netanyahu and walked away. if he did this, would he have had to meet with several people, morsi, other allies in europe. i'm surprised that it came down to one or none. it should have been several or none. none being the political calculus and several being the white house presidential calculus. >> let's it talk about the

in the wake of those protests. our senior international correspondent arwa damon is in benghazi, libya. >> reporter: the events that unfolded on friday in benghazi most certainly, at least at this point in time, seem to be having a ripple-on effect. to begin with what happened on friday, in the afternoon, pro-democracy demonstrators took to the streets demanding an end to the existence of armed militias, demanding that the government forces, the army and the police, be the only authority on the streets of the country. following that, at night we saw hundreds of individuals storming one of the headquarters of a known militant group in benghazi. after they initially managed to peacefully pretty much take over that location, they then set their sights on a second area. this, however, turned out to be a battalion that is, in fact, endorsed by the government. it did result in some clashes that caused injuries and casualties, and then the army eventually in the early morning hours of the morning, moving in, especially trying to secure massive weapons, depots that did exist there. we arrived
in benghazi over the past couple months. we've been hearing in our time on the ground here, at least to some degree, the militants, militia very much in charge in benghazi. gregg? gregg: we're hearing there is a protest and counter protest in libya. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: interesting stuff. protests planned in benghazi a big change from others we're seeing around the world in favor of the u.s. or at least honoring the late u.s. ambassador and other americans. but the broader message from the citizens there that the government based here in tripoli needs to do more to crack down on militant groups in benghazi. the problem is, another protest, gregg, is planned at the same place, at the same time by one of those militant groups. an outfit of ansar al-sharia suspected having links to the killing. they said they are innocent. they will be saying that today, maybe in a forceful day. we'll be monitoring it all. back to you. gregg: greg palkot in tripoli. greg, thanks. martha: the white house is doing a complete reversal on the characterization of the attack in libya. the adm
